Census records

Two Centuries of Censuses

On the occasion of the 33rd population census, organized by INSEE, we invite you to consult the census forms used since 1769 and a bibliography of the main INED publications on French censuses.

We would like to thank the authors of the site "Histoire de la statistique démographique" for having authorized us to use their documents.
In addition to the documents concerning French censuses, you will find on this site a selection of census and civil registration forms from different countries as well as different documents on the history of demographic statistics in the world from the 19th and 20th centuries.
